Courchevel lies at one end of the Three Valley’s which is the world’s largest linked ski area boasting 600km of piste in total. Courchevel itself is 150km of piste and the area is particularly good for beginners and intermediates but the access to the Three Valleys mean that there is something for everyone.

Courchevel is made up of 4 distinct villages – Le Praz/1300, Village/1550, Moriond/1650 and 1850. 1850 is the most prestigious of the villages and is targeted at the ultra rich with a host of expensive shops, restaurants, chalets and hotels. Courchevel has 13 hotels with a 5-star rating and the resort is home to 2 out of only 8 hotels in France that have been awarded a 6th star ‘Palace’ rating. This does mean that there isn’t a lot of low and mid range properties in 1850 but those with a lower budget and wanting to ski in Courchevel can stay in the lower villages for better value accommodation and still have the same fantastic access to the ski area.  

Courchevel itself hasn’t got that much going on in terms of après ski so it is best to head over to Meribel if you are looking for that on mountain action.

The famous Folie Douce is located near the mid station of Saulire Express. The open terrace is known for its wild entertainment with DJ’s, singers, dancers and musicians putting on a fantastic show; and The ‘Ronnie’ (Rond Point) have some of the best live music and parties around.

If you want to stay in Courchevel itself then Verdons Restaurant
is located at the top of 1850 and has a large outdoor terrace.

Kudeta is located at the foot of the slopes in Courchevel 1850 and is open from midday. The bar has a large outdoor terrace so you can pop in for a few après ski drinks and party late into the night.

In the evenings, there are a few options....

In 1650, Funky Fox is a great place to party. The bar hosts specialist nights including the infamous Bubble and Crisp DJ set on Sunday Funday.

There are several nightclubs in Courchevel 1850 , these include La Grange, Les Caves, L’Equipe, Nokken and Le Coyotte.

Courchevel has a great deal to offer for children. From the gentle pistes to the outstanding ski schools and childcare options, along with the non-ski activities in case of bad weather, it’s a resort well-suited to families with younger children.

The slopes in Courchevel 1850 sweep down gently from the Saulire peak and peter out nicely towards the base of 1850 before continuing down through the forest towards le Praz at 1300 metres. The majority of the slopes here make for an excellent gradient for children learning to make their first turns on the snow.

Parents looking for in-house childcare in Courchevel, with easy ski access as well as childcare programmes, entertainments and pastoral care throughout the day, can check out the hotel Crystal 2000. (http://interactiveresorts.co.uk/france/courchevel/crystal-2000 ) This property offers a wide range of family-friendly facilities and parents can book the children in to everything from ski lessons and supervised lunches to kids clubs and excursions out into the resort, all under the care of the in-house childcare team.

For further childcare options, there’s a great range of external nanny services on hand, offering well-qualified and competent childcare to parents in need. Examples include Jelly and Ice Cream (http://www.jellyandice-cream.com/childcare-in-courchevel/ ) and Snow Bugs (http://www.snowbugs.co.uk/ ) who both offer fully CRB checked and experienced nannies for a wide range of childcare services in resort. Snow Angel Nannies (http://www.snowangelnannies.co.uk) are another company offering similar services.

Courchevel offers some of the finest ski tuition in the Alps and a superb range of high quality ski schools have been operating here for a great many seasons. Of course ESF are here but families with beginner children can choose from many other ski schools, all with multilingual instructors, including Magic in Motion, Supreme Ski and The Snow School to name but a few.
